This is one of my favorite recipe from Giada De Laurentiis at Food Network. This is an Italian cuisine and it's so delicious to serve it to your family and friends.


1 (4 lb) whole chicken, cut into pieces
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup low-salt chicken broth
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper


1. Whisk the vinegar, mustard, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl to blend. Combine the vinaigrette and chicken pieces in a large resealable plastic bag and toss to coat. Refrigerate, turning the chicken pieces occasionally, for at least 2 hours and up to 1 day.

2. Preheat the oven to 400 degree F. Remove the chicken pieces from the bag and arrange it on a large greased baking dish. Roast until the chicken is just cooked through, about 1 hour. If your chicken browns too quickly, cover it with foil for the remaining cooking time.

3. Transfer the chicken pieces to a serving platter. Place the baking dish on a burner over medium-low heat. Whisk the chicken broth into the pan drippings. Drizzle the pan drippings over the chicken.

4. Sprinkle the lemon zest and parsley over the chicken, and serve.
